Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive, to the voice of my supplications! If you, O Lord, Should mark inequities, Lord, who could stand? But there is forgiveness with you, that you may be worshipped. I wait for the lord; my soul waits, in the Lord’s word, I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning. O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord, there is steadfast love, with the Lord is plenteous redemption. And the Lord will redeem Israel, from all inequities.
